|Sample Graduate School Admissions Essay 2
(Pharmacy Doctoral Program)
Spending my early years in my family’s native Lebanon gave me a sense of history and permanence on this earth that seemed very at odds with the new life we started when my family moved to New Mexico when I was ___ years old. Life in Lebanon is, on the surface, much like it was hundreds of years ago, and if you were to take a picture of our street there and its inhabitants, I have no doubt with the exception of the particulars of people’s faces it would look much the same as a painting from long ago. It seemed at first that nothing in New Mexico was older than 20 or 30 years old, families moved on and off our block regularly, and everything seemed to be in a constant state of flux. This was so unlike what I was used to that it took awhile to get adjusted, but I soon learned, however, to appreciate my new home and see the importance in constantly trying to improve on what has gone before you. My parents moved us to the US in order to further my father’s education and it is with great pride that I now too seek the same opportunity to build a career on solid educational foundation.
My undergraduate career is marked by a solid grade point average and I have every intention of maintaining and indeed improving my performance in graduate school as I will now be able to devote all of my attention to the sole subject of my interest: pharmacology. I knew early on in my studies that this was a subject that I could excel in due to my natural inclination towards the sciences, but it was only through my experience working in a pharmacy that I found I also had the important ability to relate to the patients as well. I am by nature a compassionate person, and I have found that my calm demeanor and patient explanations to customers helps to put them at ease in what can at times be a stressful or intimidating experience.
It is my goal to earn a doctorate in pharmacology and then apply that knowledge in a career as a pharmacist. I am eager to expand my knowledge in this field and hope to take part in future research projects. I have also had the opportunity to volunteer in my local Children’s Hospital and I hope that as I become more experienced my volunteer activities will expand as well since I will be able to offer more expertise to those in need. I look forward to building a solid educational foundation which I hope to constantly improve upon by staying abreast of any improvements in the field, at ___ University.
